History and Mandate
Supporting the community of Delta through the sport of swimming since 1985.
About Delta Sungod
First established in 1985, the Delta Sungod Swim Club (DSSC) has been an important part of the North Delta athletic community for over thirty years.
Delta Sungod has produced many National level swimmers as well as launching Olympian, Danielle Kisser, into her swimming career. Danielle began her swimming journey with DSSC and made national teams as well as her first paralympics in Tokoyo 2020.
After leading his team as a young swimmer to the podium at the BC Provincial Championnships Gregg Hamm later went on to swim 4 years with the UBC Varsity swim team where he was captain of the men's team. Gregg was also a member of the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
Gregg and Danielle are just some examples of the excellence, dedication and overall love for the sport that Delta Sungod hopes to instills in each and every one of its athletes.
The number of practices and racing your swimmer will do will depend on the group they are training with and the level they achieve (championship meets, etc). As swimmers progress through their competitive swimming career with DSSC we want them to continue their development as swimmers.
A Lifetime of Achievements
Delta Sungod has remained focused and dedicated to producing high level athletes in a positive and fun atmosphere both on and off the pool deck. The goal of the Delta Sungod swim program is to further develop the character and abilities of all athletes both on and off the pool deck. Our club has a vast array of athletes; from swimmers just starting in the water to producing high performance competitive swimmers. We are committed to meeting the needs of each individual athlete.
How does Delta Maintain its Goal?
1) Ensuring Delta Sungod meets the rules and regulations of the Societies Act and Swim BC.
2) Providing all athletes the ability to compete.
3) Further development of the interpersonal skills of all Coaches to foster strong communication with athletes and parents.
4) Provide swimmers with equipment necessary to succeed both in the water and in their daily lives.
5) Fostering a sense of community and unity through club events and swim meets.
The Delta Sungod Swim team is so much more than just a swim club. We strongly value unity, inclusiveness and commitment to the development of both athletic ability and character development. We are a close team that considers all our members as more than just a team; We are a family. The sportsmanship and goals provided by the club allows connections to form that will last a lifetime.
Delta Sungod would also like to recognize the support of their community. Without their involvement, Delta Sungod would not be the team that they are today.
